2. PLANNING YOUR OWN FUNDRAISING EVENTWhat type of event are you going to have?It’s easy to have big ideas that spiral out of control, so if you’ve never organised a fundraising eventbefore, start with something small. You can always HOLD a larger scale event next time. You mayalready know what you want to do, but if you’re stuck for ideas think about what you’re good at, orwhat your friends and family are likely to be interested in.Getting your idea off the ground: Create a plan. Then stick to it. Pick a realistic date, making sure you give yourself enough time to do everything. Check your date doesn’t clash with any major events, like the AFL grand final! Alternatively, youmay wish to use these events as your inspiration for a themed event. Lighten the load by recruiting a team of helpers. Pick reliable friends and family and delegatetasks. Please ensure that you informThe Western Health Foundation of the name, address, age andtelephone number of all helpers for your fundraiser, so that appropriate authorisation and thanks isgiven to them too.Here are some suggestions to inspire you: Trivia or quiz nights are great fundraisers and are fun and easy to organise. Get rid of your old wares by holding a garage sale. Do you work in an office? If so, you could have an afternoon tea. Ask colleagues to help with thebaking and tempt people with some delicious treats! Organise your own sponsored walk – whether it’s a stroll around your local park or a challenginghike in the countryside.Location, Location, LocationIf you’re hiring a venue for your event, visit it first and talk through your requirements with thevenue manager. Check exactly what facilities they have. Think about things like parking, disabledaccess and capacity. Discuss insurance liability and risk assessment.Beg or borrowFind ways to keep costs down. Avoid paying for the venue hire or staff costs where possible, or askthe venue manager if they will give you a charity discount. If your guests will be spending at the bar,the venue will still be making money. If you’re holding a raffle or a quiz, ask local business to donateprizes. They may even be willing to sponsor your event. Don’t be disheartened if the first companyyou ask says no. The more you ask, the more you’ll get!Create a budget for your event and keep track of your finances. There’s no point putting in lots ofeffort only to break even.

Let everyone know Once you’ve made your plans, get the word out. Tell people early and remind them at least once. We can help you with collateral where applicable to help you promote your event. If your event is open to the public, contact your local newspaper or radio station to see if they’llspread the word.After your event It’s not over yet! You will no doubt have had plenty of support to make your event a success. Letpeople know how grateful you and The Western Health Foundation are for their support. Tell themhow much you’ve raised – they’ll be very pleased to hear about your success. Plus, they might feelinspired to get involved next time. If you are happy for us to share how things went with your event, please send an email aboutyour event and any photos of your event to We may feature you in ournewsletter or on our website or Facebook page.3.
